Halibut Hors d'oeuvres
Alaska Gourmet Original or Coconut batter make these luscious bites quick and easy
Thaw and cut the halibut into bite sized pieces. Dip the halibut in the batter and turn them to coat them completely. Let the excess batter drip off and drop them into the panko bread crumbs. Place them into the hot oil and turn to brown evenly. Do not cook the halibut too long! Take it out as soon as it is light golden brown, about 2 minutes if your oil is the proper temperature. The fish will be moist and flake easily.
Serve with toothpicks and enjoy!
Out of halibut? Try salmon in coconut flavor batter or mushrooms in herb flavor. If your freezer is cleaned out of last summer's harvest, scallops and shrimp prepared in coconut are perennial favorites also.
